    Summary

    "Sometimes I feel that he is as mysterious as the gods, and that he is hiding something of vital importance from me. Something that would transform my life."

    Few events are more thrilling in a young man's life than a blood feud between two villages. Or so Adrian thought.

    Torn between affection toward his traditional-minded father and worship of his peace-loving, heretical priest, Adrian finds himself caught between two incompatible visions of his duty to the gods. Then the Jackal God sends Adrian a message that will disrupt his world and send him fleeing to a new and perilous life.

    Boilerplate warning for all my stories.

    I'm serializing this novel weekly, but it's completely written and edited.

    Summary

    She's never stepped foot off of the small, isolated island of Jakku. She's never considered leaving, never once thought about stepping off the shores to visit the mainland. She never thought about attacks, about the Empire ruling just beyond the waves, about the Emperor and his soldiers. She didn't even think, not about the Emperor or his cruelty or his consort back on the mainland who has no idea he's about to befriend a woman who's never known a world outside of marble columns and an old statue.

    Summary

    The wizarding world has been ruled by the "most noble and ancient house of Black" for over a century.

    Society has been separated into three classes - the elite being those with magic, the plebeians being non-magic folk, and the enslaved "Beasts".

    A small sect of free werewolves is growing, living on the outskirts of the empire, hidden. They are clever and merciless, using guerrilla tactics to fight against the organized forces of the Black house, and they are growing in numbers.

    The wolves are the only lasting threat to the stability of the empire - but all that is about to change.

    Sirius, the Black family heir, has taken an interest in one of the beasts... and Remus, the right hand man of the rebellion, is about to watch his world fall apart.

    Summary

    Cleopatra Selene, usually just called Selene, has been a prisoner in Rome for years -- ever since her mother's death at Octavian's hands.
    After a while, when she's grown, Octavian, now called Augustus, decides to marry her off. Unfortunately, she has inherited her mother's spirit as well as her looks.
    Maecenas, as a joke, suggests a solution. No one expects Octavian to take it seriously.
    They all warn him that she won't wait until he's asleep to kill him, and that it defeats the purpose of begetting an heir if she castrates him in the process, but he's made up his mind.
    So has she.

    Summary

    Lato, które zmieniło wszystko.
    Antysielanka.

     

    "Poszedłem do lasu, wybrałem bowiem życie z umiarem... Chcę żyć pełnią życia. Chcę wyssać wszystkie soki życia! By zgromić wszystko to, co życiem nie jest, i by nie odkryć tuż przed śmiercią, że nie umiałem żyć"

    Henry David Thoreau „Walden”

    Summary

    Antonio couldn't understand why he was cursed to go through this same torturous event. He was constantly asking the Gods to give him a way to stop it- or at least an answer as to why they do this to him. Why couldn't Lovino be the same as himself? All Antonio wants is a person- preferably Lovino- to stay with him for the many centuries to come.

    [Takes place in Ancient Rome where Antonio is an immortal, working as a servant for the mortal Vargas family.]
